YD Driving School Students Learn How to Stay Collision-Free

Traffic crashes are the leading cause of death for Canadians under the age of 25. That's why a Young Drivers school driving class teaches the Collisionfree!™ Approach. Statistics show that more than 90% of collisions are caused by driver error - YD Habits and 20 Sub-Habits show our students how to watch out for other drivers errors - mistakes that often result in collisions that could have been prevented. Young Drivers also monitors the quality of the driving programs we offer, where Young Drivers of Canada driving education is the ONLY ISO9001:2008 registered drive school program in Canada. ONLY Young Drivers driving education teaches exclusive emergency maneuvers:

  • Rear Crash Avoidance
  • Emergency Braking
  • Emergency Swerving Techniques
  • Head-on Collision Avoidance

These are just some of the life saving techniques YD school for driving students are taught. In-class and in-car driving instructors are re-certified on an annual basis to ensure their knowledge is current and their skills are at the highest level. Every YD student must pass three driving learning in-class tests and two in-car evaluations to make certain they are ready to drive on their own and take the driving license test. In the car students are evaluated on their defensive driving skills. Also with the YD simulated driver license test, we help YD students get ready for the real road test thus increasing their chances of passing their driver test the first time to successfully get their driving licence.
